help on Maya (Egg)

I am stuck on something on the Maya tutorials. I've obeyed every command that the video instructed however every time I click "extrude" it creates something that isn't correct (see the bottom picture), which is not what I wanted or was instructed. I made sure that "keep faces together" was on so I don't know what happening and I've selected the right faces so I've done nothing wrong (as far as I know) and it still fails to give me the options that the Maya tutorials instructed. (FYI: no, I don't know why there is a dent on the top. After I completed everything the video instructed I found it like that, am I missing something? I watched the video three times and attempted the egg twice).

Thank you to those who can help me.

You need to use extrude under the face sub-menu rather than under the vertex sub-menu, this should stop that happening.
